Are you babying it? Can you just jam through the gears or won't they let you in at all until they sync? How long is the sync?
No, believe me- I am not babying it. I cannot just jam through the gears- it takes about 1/2 second from intial shifter movement to gear sync, which IMO, is way too long for a modern transmission. The harder I push, the longer it seems to take....
